Transmission on my 1983 delta 88 royal is leaking trans fluid while I am driving and when sitting still please help


Your are sure it is transmission fluid? If it is, there are probably seals on the shafts and on the pan that are leaking. This means removing parts like the transmission pan and replacing the gaskets. It could also be a main seal on one of the shafts that are on the engine and output side of the transmission. This is not a job for the average do it yourself person. It requires special tools.

Hello i have a 2002 hyudnai accent 1.6 automatic. I noticed the other day the my car was leaking transmission fluid alot. I looked under the car and i cant tell where it is coming from.when i looked it is...


It's very likely the leak is from the gasket on the transmission pan. Once a leak starts, it's common for it to "travel" to different areas which would account for you seeing more than 1 area of leaking fluid. A problem like this could also be a leaking transmission line but based on the amount of fluid you are losing, I'd lean toward the gasket being the problem. If you decide to change the gasket, it would be a good idea to go ahead and replace the filter as well. If having the work done at a service station, I'd go ahead and have the full fluid change which would include a new filter and gasket as well as changing out the fluid which should be changed every 30k miles.

Tranny fluids are leaking on my monte carlo


Hi, that is a bad deal. The best way to find where it is leaking from is to get under the car and wipe off all the oil and muck under there on your oil pan and transmission pan, crossmembers and most anywhere you see leakage buildup. Then get a couple old cardboard boxes and cut them flat. Then lay them under the entire (from bumper to the back of drivers door across entire width of vehicle) car while it is parked for the night. Start car and let idle about 10 mins. shifting in to reverse and creeping back a foot and then into drive creeping back up a foot a few times. Let the car sit overnight. Next day observe the leak spots left on the cardboard and then go under the car and try to locate the origin of the leak. The transmission is most likely leaking from the pan, but there are transmission lines that go to and from your radiator. That is so fluid can circulate through a channel in your radiator to cool the fluid. Those can spring a leak also. If your pan leaks, you can change the gasket and filter in the transmission (fluid also at that time, as you will lose about 1/2 to 2/3rds
of it when dropping the tranny pan. If your lines are leaking, they should be replaced complete rather than attempting to repair them. (Occasionally they will have a band clamp on the rubber portion near the radiator that can be loose). If you see it dripping from the rear of the transmission, the seal around the output shaft is bad. It can be replaced at home if you have patience. If it is leaking from between the engine and transmission, the front input shaft seal is bad. You have to pull the tranny out to replace it. Quite a job.
Good luck with solving your leaks!

THE CAR STARTS, THE SHIFT LEAVER MOVES TO ALL THE POSITIONS BUT THE REANSMISSION NEVER ENGAGES AND THE CAR WONT MOVE.


how easily dies the shifter move? if it feels as if there is no pressure, then possibly the cable is broken. have you had the fluid level checked? maybe there is a leak you are unaware of.

Leaking transmission fluid


it is down on the drivers side of the car about 18 inched from the front it has a tight fit so you will need to have a funnel with a hose, to fix the leak you will most likely have to replace your transmission pan (it cost me $240 at the dealership) the saturn ls1 sits very low to the ground and if you dent the pan it will leak i have replaced mine twice in four years
